A medical malpractice law firm is one in which its lawyers focus on the needs of clients who have experienced an injury, illness, or death due to wrongful action or inaction at the hands of the medical practitioners to whom they have entrusted their care.

The majority of practitioners prove their competence every day, working diligently and ethically in the care of their patients. Even so, Doctors continue to harm patients through malpractice. That small percentage adds up to enough negligence cases that we and other law firms have made medical practice litigation a primary focal point.

Medical malpractice is a departure and deviation from standard acceptable medical care. To bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against a health care professional, your lawyer must generally prove four things-

  1. The hospital or medical practitioner owed you a duty to provide competent medical services pursuant to recognized care standards because you were their patient
  2. The hospital or medical practitioner breached this by deviating from those accepted standards of medical care
  3. The hospital staff's or medical practitioner's negligence caused your injury
  4. You or your loved one sustained injury and damage as a result of the medical malpractice
